So again whats the point - you quote RL to blame me and France but do not want to see RL history how neutrality played out for Belgium. Thats propaganda - that I will keep on ignoring. In game my colonial interests were not respected - which should change now. And if the CPs do not have aggressive expansionist intentions, then neither me nor France are a threat, as we do not plan to attack the CPs either - Belgium in general does plan a colonial game not a European expansion.
The difference is that one case of real life is part of the historical background of the game, it's already happened, and is part of our game, like it or not while the other is far, far into the future of our game and not part of the record at all. The Treaty of London certainly does have a place in game.
If we were starting in 1920, the action of Germany and Austria in 1914 would have a place in game just as the treaty of London does now. We're not starting in 1920 though, so they don't.
